I bought this CD when it was first released, but somehow always seem to pass it by (I like DP12 and some unofficials better for '74). After your recommendation, I've been revisiting it this past week.

I find disk 2 (including WRS> Jam> Wharf Rat) only fair for the era, but the rest is "next level". Especially disk 4 (Eyes, Playin'> Scarlet> Playin', Uncle John's).
